The 2012 US Open is in full swing, and it kicked off last week with one of the more delicious sports-related events thanks to the BNP Paribas Taste of Tennis party, hosted by none other than Top Chef judge and all-around foodie Gail Simmons ... plus some very special guests.

Joining Gail for this exclusive video were Top Chef Masters competitor Kerry Heffernan and, because this is tennis, the gold-medal-winning Bryan brothers, who took the doubles crown in London last month. They even brought said bling, which dropped Gail's jaw and almost derailed their soba noodle dish.



The event, held at the W NY hotel in Manhattan, also featured food from some of the country's top chefs -- including Kerry, who was plating up heirloom tomatoes and burrata a mere 24 hours after his wife gave birth to their second child. Now that's dedication.
